Description[edit | edit source]
Hotephres is a former adventurer of Greek descent that married a local Egyptian woman. He dislikes the Ptolemaic rule and feels partially responsible for the actions of other Greek officials in Egypt, such as Berenike.
Hotephres always tried to take the high road but quickly started regretting this when his daughter was killed by Berenike. He blames himself for the loss of his child, believing that it was his duty to protect her as a father. This damaged him severely and the usually friendly and talkative Hotephres fell into grief and depression.
He feels a strong connection with Bayek, due to the fact that they have both lost their only child. He feels inspired by the assassin and plays a major role in the formation of the Creed near the end of the story.
Hotephres rediscovers himself in the end, during the battle against the Ptolemaic.
